At its fall meeting, the Georgia South Carolina Association voted to receive 
Kirkwood United Church of Christ as a congregation in full standing in the 
UCC. The church shared the story of their journey from their beginnings in a 
coffee shop through a number of different settings for worship to the present 
location in downtown Kirkwood. The church led by Susannah Davis currently has a 
worshipping congregation of 60-70 each week, and continues to grow. They are 
the proud supporters of nine members in discernment preparing for ordination in 
the UCC. Kirkwood UCC invites all of the churches of the association, their 
members and clergy to a service of reception into the United Church of Christ on 
November 20*^ at 5:00 pm. We will be welcoming Ben Guess the newly elected 
Executive Minister of Local Church Ministries of the UCC as our preacher. 
Following the service there will be a community wide dinner for all. 



Midway Congregational UCC, Midway, GA, is embarking on an innovative 
community ministry, under the leadership of their new pastor, Larry Evans. 
Wanting to serve and strengthen the families of Liberty County, the church is 
opening a Center for Families and Wellness. Rev. Evans is a licensed therapist 
and is working in collaboration with agencies in the area to staff and equip the 
Center.
